The cat's out of the bag!
After 6 months or so of endlessly tweaking pages and doing site prototypes and redesigns Philm and company have thrown it all open, casting caution to the winds and actually taken down the old "preview" note.
The new randomized rotating Freax-o-rama front door is in place, the new features are loose and though there's still a ton of work to do on new and pending features... well, we're open now and ready to party!!! Champagne, anyone? Make sure you sign the guestbook before you get too carried away!
Even Philm himself doesn't know what has yet to be unearthed in some of those time-capsule trunks he buried all these memories in.
Needless to say, the pages you see here are subject to change without warning and are likely under re-construction for the rest of eternity as we pull new features out of thin air and meddle with what we've already done. We're also using our patented Roto-Rama front door to give the illusion we're working hard even when we slack off for weeks at a time. Most of this material waited 20 years or more to get here and our highly evolved work ethics and sense of craftsmanship prevent us from rushing things or forcing anything online before it's ready. :^)
Our Phil Franks Gallery sister site is a tribute to someone who might be Phil's manager, mentor, alter ego or twin brother who was kidnapped by aliens -- we always get a different answer every time we ask! Anyway, even though Phil won't tell us what he was doing in Italy, New York, New England we've got a few galleries of circumstantial evidence to prove he was there.
Friends/Frendz Magazine seems to be growing into a site of its own as more and more old friends are coming out of the woodwork. We're rolling out additional extracts of Jonathon Green's interview manuscripts from Days in the Life as soon as we can, there's just so much of it that we're swimming in ideas and potential features, assuming anyone is interested. Let us know if you'd like to see more of this.
